3fourths (7874) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 14, 2006
Murky dark brown. Scent of butterscotch, wood, maple, brown sugar and caramlized plums. Very bright and fresh taste up front, lacking depth but still very enjoyable - flavors of wood, plums, brown sugar and some chewy bready flavors. A beer that could be a brown ale and could be a scotch ale and could be a strong ale - itís an interesting multi-style hybrid that has itís own place. Itís good to find beer like this.

Eructoblaster (2955) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 23, 2006
Bottle. Gorgeous hazy dark brown body with reddish glints, low carbonation, and a thick, lasting beige creamy head. Wonderful and complex malty aroma with various hints of hops, plum, chocolate and brown sugar. Nice, sharp, and well balanced hoppy taste that hides the alcohol pretty well. It leaves a good bitter/roasty aftertaste. This is a superb Strong Ale!

I think this one is courtesy of luiss, but if not him them some other fine chap that participated in the Mystery Beer Swap trade. Aroma has some dark malts and sweet candied fruit notes. Body is a dark ruddy brown and holds a firm and lasting pinky sized tan head. Tart fruit notes in the fore...apple, cherry..which meld into sweet dark malt flavors. Almost approaches sour at times, but in a good way....a little bit like New Glarusí Cherry Stout though much less concentrated and without the overy cherry flavors. The finish is a mix of the previous flavors but imparts a more defined tartness that defines the flavor of the whole beer. Very nice suprise.

had on tap. extremely dark red in coloration, beautiful appearance. initial taste reminded me of the red wine, but shifted almost immediately to a solid english strong taste with a sweet finish. very good beer, especially for a regional brewery. recommended.

Tap @ Lake Placid Brewpub. First of all I should say that this fine brew is made in such a wonderfull town. It is a very fitting "flagship" beer to represent this olympic town on Mirror Lake. It pours dark, mahogany brown with a tan head. Roasted malt aroma with a nutty, semi-sweet taste. If youíre ever in this out of the way locale you should make it a priority to visit their brewpub and settle in for a pint or two.

Bottle. Pours with a dark red color. Very nice aromas of malts and some nuttiness. Flavors of malts, some hops and some metallic notes in the finish. Quite enjoyable beer.
